File permissions for "/usr/sap"

Hi everyone!

The question may sound dummy but how should be the file permissions for "/usr/sap" directory?

I mean who should be the owner of "sap" directory?

I'm having troubles with sapccmsr agent and the log for this agent - sapccmsr.log - shows the following warning message:

"WARNING: Could not create directory /usr/sap/ccms"

I'm beginning to suspect of file permissions for "/usr/sap" directory - where "sap" directory is currently owned by "root" within my system.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Kind regards,



Hi Paulo,

You need to change the group permission only for /usr/sap directory.

So Try the following permission for /usr/sap

chgrp -R sapsys /usr/sap.

after changing the permission your permission look like as follows.

ls -ld /usr/sap/

drwxr-xr-x 7 root sapsys 4096 Sep 20 2008 /usr/sap/

Thanks and Regards,

Kamal Kishore
